Seasons Changing


A few days ago we slid quietly into autumn here in southern Vermont. As if gently whispered, summer said farewell whilst the maple and beech leaves fell with greater purpose in our adjoining forest. Fall is, without a doubt, my favorite time of year. So many fond memories are attached to this colorful season...jumping into piles of leaves that my Dad had just raked, tramping through a forest path strewn with yellow leaves in order to spend time at a friend's house, and HALLOWEEN...oh most fabulous Halloween...a holiday I shall forever love as it brews and bubbles all sorts of magic even in my 54 year old mind.

I've felt close to ALL of the seasons all of my life. A book that was passed down from my brothers that I still have to this day is "The Bumper Book," edited by Watty Piper and published in the 1940's. Below are pics from pages which I've loved and took in so deeply that I feel I've carried them in my heart throughout all of my life. How can one explain the sheer excitement about traveling through the seasons year after year?! Of being not only part of the seasonal changes, but being the change, as well! Even as a little girl I somehow realized that I had a choice on how I reacted to the changing of the seasons. I could celebrate the seasons and their associated weather patterns, or curse them. I could honor the light AND shadow side of the seasons, or disregard them as something not connected to me at all. I could be joyful about the holidays tucked into each season, or be disgusted that my schedule had been disrupted and that I had to take part in the festivities. Our happiness is directly connected to our choices.

The seasons speak to me of simple pleasures at their best. Changing seasons feel to me like such a miracle, such a blessing. May this autumn bring you joy, laughter, and delight. Go on...jump in that pile of leaves!!!! And do set out a pumpkin or two for me, please!

Prayer

When I was little and growing up as a Catholic, I memorized all the prayers Catholics said before bed, when waking up, before meals, after meals, during and after being in a confessional, all throughout the mass, and no doubt during other situations I found myself in. I would add all sorts of names of individual people and animals to those I prayed for. I asked for help from Mother Mary, Jesus (tho' as a kid I didn't want to bother Him much), St. Joseph, my Guardian Angels, various Saints, and others up in Heaven. All and all, taking into account that I said even more prayers when at my Parochial grade school, and when going to an all-girls Catholic high school, it's suffice to say I said A LOT of prayers as I grew into adulthood.

Around age 10 or so it occurred to me that much time was spent praying for various, needy situations and folks. I got the keen idea that I'd start off the prayer I wanted to say and then finish with, "and all that stuff," rather than list each situation and person individually. This seemed fair enough. After all, I reasoned, "They" knew what and who I meant.

Somewhere between the end of high school and beginning my years at a Jesuit university, I pretty much stopped praying. I got the idea that God knew what was in my heart and that I didn't need to spell it all out for Him or anyone else 'Over There,' for that matter. Besides, I was busy: dating, putting on make-up, working odd jobs, studying...all important stuff, you know...

Once I had children I taught them both how to say some of the prayers that I knew as a Catholic. It just seemed the 'right' foundation to give them. Now that I think of it, I pretty much concentrated on prayers before bed with them and not all the rest that I had learned as a child. Interestingly, I still didn't say many of my own prayers during that time, other than the occasional, "Please help me, God," which could be conveniently shortened to "Help!" when necessary during an emergency. And then there's my "Jesus, Mary, and Joseph"...a plea for 'whatever,' if there ever was one! And yes, I'd throw in a random "Hail Mary" when flying on an airplane and even very occasionally said a whole rosary every few years. I was also attending Catholic mass with the kids but I can attest that what I was saying by rote with the congregation was not something I was solemnly ingesting or thinking much about. Still, saying those prayers at mass with all the others was somehow calming and felt like a welcoming 'hug.' I do know that then as now I love ritual, so it makes sense that I was comforted by the rituals of my childhood. Sadly, however, prayers of thanks to God were few and far between for many of my early adult years, and if said at all were blurted out 'on the fly.'

And here I am now, many years after my children were little, and a fully Ordained Minister, at that. Oh how the times did change for me. What I realized at some point in my adulthood was that I missed out on conversing with God/Source/Universe/Divine during all those 'prayer-barren' years. What a shame! I missed out on acknowledging that I was truly watched over and unconditionally loved. Oh, I'm sure somewhere within I knew this, but it's so much better to be AWARE and fully ALIVE, taking in the huge meaning of such a personal relationship with God.

Now to be honest, I'm not totally sure exactly what made me crave a one-on-one dialogue with Source again. But in the last 6+ years I can understand my want, especially given the Spiritual paths I found myself walking on and given what I was learning and experiencing. Perhaps it was the various hardships in my adult life that brought me back. No matter what, I AM GRATEFUL!

There's a special little book by Alan Cohen, "Handle with Prayer - Harnessing the Power to Make Your Dreams Come Through," that I'd like to highly recommend to anyone interested. In it he writes, "The most powerful prayer is not the longest, but the simplest. God is not impressed by fancy words, or cajoled by dense rhetoric." Mr. Cohen adds, "If your prayer comes from your heart, your communication is sent and received in one holy instant, and your answer will be manifested quickly. To offer a prayer that will reach heaven and the heart of God: Keep it simple. Keep it pure. Keep it you."

"Prayer helps us to respond to misfortune with courage, 
to react with confidence and to rebound with ENTHUSIASM."

Ma's Wisdom

An e-mail in my inbox this morning got me thinking about my Ma. The e-mail was the daily offering of Esther Hicks, who channels the oh-so-wise entities 'Abraham'.

Here's today's post:
"Other's Opinion Are Less Important Than My Personal Guidance System... You did not intend to use the opinions of your parents to measure against your beliefs, desires, or actions in order to determine the appropriateness of them. Instead, you knew (and still remembered, long after you were born) that it was the relationship between the opinion (or knowledge) of the Source within you and your current thoughts, in any moment, that would offer you perfect guidance in the form of emotions. You did not intend to replace your Emotional Guidance System with the opinions of your parents even if they were in harmony with their Emotional Guidance System in the moment of their trying to guide you. It was much more important to you to recognize the existence of your own Guidance System, and to utilize it, than to be deemed correct by, or to find approval from, others."
~ Abraham 

When I was little I used to think my Ma's word was the absolute, God-given, not-to-be-disputed truth. Now I'm pretty sure a lot of little girls felt the same way about what their own mother said. Or not. But in any case, I surely did think that Ma had an inside track on what was best for all. 

By age 13 or so, I began to think that maybe Ma didn't know as much as I had once thought. LOL! Enter the turbulent years where not only did I buck up against her word, my facial expressions and body language most definitely showed just what I thought of EVERYTHING she thought or said.

In my mid-twenties, things settled down a bit between Ma and I. It's not that I always thought she was right. Far from it. However, I was able to at least allow her finish her sentences before I formed an opinion. 

As we both aged we got along much better once again. I know that it helped that I lived in a different state than her. Again, LOL! I called her everyday, not because I had to, but because I wanted to. Somewhere between then and when Alzheimer's got its grip on her I remember Ma honestly saying, "You know, I don't know everything." I responded equally honestly, "When I was little I thought you did." She said that only God knew everything. I've never forgotten this pearl of Ma's wisdom. 

And now I understand that the best source of this incredible knowledge from Source...that which is for my highest and best good...is available within me, should I wish to listen to it. Should I wish to act on it. What could be better than one's personal GPS?!!!

September's Free Reading

Calling all those who want to be in September's drawing for one free reading. The winner can choose between one 30-minute Tarot reading OR a 30-minute Psychic Mediumship reading. The reading will be via Skype or phone. An MP3 recording of the reading will be included as my gift to you, if one desires it.

How can you win this reading? Wait for my post each month, which will generally be on the first of the month. Either send me an e-mail (spinningjenny57@hotmail.com) OR comment on the blog post that has the free offer (include your e-mail address so I can contact you if you win). After a few days of having the free-offer-post up I'll put all names in a hat and pull the winner (my random decision on when this will happen). The winner will be on the post that the offer was on, using their first name only (along with last name initials, if needed to distinguish them from others with the same first name). I'll contact that person via e-mail to let them know that they have won. We'll schedule a reading for a day/time that's good for both of us. If you win, please do not enter the contest again for one year. Thank you!

If you do not win this month, your name will automatically go into the drawing for the following months, so no need to e-mail me each month to be included. If, for whatever reason, you don't want to be in future drawings do let me know, please.

The winner for September's free reading is: Maryjo!
